Tim Roth plays mind games with Rebecca Hall in Resurrection trailer

The human mind is such a fragile thing. Sometimes we need to cling to a few lies and illusions just to make it through the day. That’s one of the reasons why the latest trailer for Resurrection is so intriguing. In the film, Rebecca Hall’s Margaret is haunted by the events of her past, and her mental struggles have apparently been an ongoing challenge for her to deal with. However, the relatively happy life that Margaret has put together as a single mother is shattered when David (Tim Roth) reenters her life.

This trailer seems to be intentionally vague about what relationship Margaret and David had in the past. It’s also unclear whether David is gaslighting Margaret when he claims that he doesn’t know her, or if she is simply projecting her justifiable fears about David’s return onto someone else. Margaret’s daughter, Abbie (Grace Kaufman), even tells her mother that she may be having “an episode.” This suggests that Margaret has had some mental breakdowns before. It also forces viewers to question whether the threat of David is real, or if it is all in Margaret’s mind. How far will Margaret go to protect herself from threats both real and imagined?

The 10 darkest moments in the DCEU, ranked
A tiny version of Starro attached to someone's face in "The Suicide Squad."

For better or worse, the DC Extended Universe has depicted some of the darkest moments ever seen in superhero media. This franchise started out especially grim, but it seems to have shaken off this image in the post-Snyderverse era.

Nevertheless, with scenes like these, this cinematic universe has still dared to present some heavy realism in the lives of the heroes and villains who populate it.

How to watch Canelo vs. Charlo: Date, time, PPV price and undercard
Canelo Alvarez and Jermell Charlo face off on a promotional poster.

We have an undisputed super middleweight fight this weekend! Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (59-2-2, 39 KOs) is defending all four of his belts against Jermell Charlo (35-1-1, 19 KOs) in a Premier Boxing Champions fight card. This is Canelo's third fight since his loss to Dmitrii Bivol in May of 2022. Charlo's last actual fight was that same month, so he's coming out of quite a layoff. Charlo is also an undisputed champion -- he has all four super welterweight belts -- but only Canelo's titles are on the line in this fight.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs. Jermell Charlo will start on Saturday, September 30 at 8:00 p.m. ET. It's a PPV event on Showtime, and there are some exciting undercard fights leading up to the main event. Here's everything you need to know to watch boxing online this weekend.

10 biggest sci-fi hits of all time, ranked by adjusted box-office gross
C-3PO, R2-D2, Luke, and Leia staring out at space in "Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back."

Thanks to Box Office Mojo, fans can see exactly how their favorite movies' box office numbers translate to the current dollar value. Since some of the most notable sci-fi movies came out decades ago, their listed gross numbers can be a bit misleading. For example, George Lucas' landmark achievement Star Wars was released in 1977. Due to inflation since then, the buying power of $1 in 1977 is equal to about $5.25 in 2023. That's a significant difference!

The biggest domestic sci-fi hits of all time when adjusted by box-office gross reveal how a few franchises have a viselike hold on the genre. Here are the top 10 sci-fi hits of all time when adjusted for inflation based on the 2022 ticket price.
